Thornton Sports sponsor Community Sports Project Award at Hyndburn Sports Awards

Our team were honoured to be involved in the Hyndburn Sports Awards which took place last night at Accrington Town Hall.

Organised by Hyndburn Leisure, the awards are the largest annual celebration of amateur sport in our borough. They pay tribute to those, young and old, that show dedication to perform at the highest level or those who work tirelessly to support individuals or clubs week in, week out, for the love of sport.

The ‘Community Sports Project Award’ sponsored by Thornton Sports, was presented to Hyndburn and Ribble Valley School Sports Partnership by our Managing Director, David Saxby. The partnership has supported schools to deliver high quality PE and school sport since 2005. Working alongside 65 primary schools, 10 secondary schools and 2 special schools, their aim is to inspire a generation of young people to become engaged in sport and lead healthy lifestyles.

David Saxby, comments,

“As a leading UK sports surfacing contractor we feel it is important for us to support and encourage sports participation at the community level in our local area. It was therefore a pleasure to present an award to our local school sports partnership which is doing just that.”
